Providing clear pathways through a site like this is fundamental for achieving direct site-based sales. Insurance can be a confusing subject, especially to a market that doesn't deal with insurance-industry terminology regularly. I examined the principles of interface design to see how I could make this site the most user friendly.
JLT has very strict visual guidelines, which whilst may seem restricting at times, really make for a much more unified final product. I set the bulk of the information into 3 columns, because it's not an overwhelming in-take of categories, but enough to clearly see what is needed. Likewise with the pricing. Three clear columns makes comparison easy for the user.
On the home-page I placed the 'quick buy' categories more towards the top. This is to appear more important and quicker drive customers to check-out.
I separated the visual cues between the 'quick-buy' and the 'longer purchase process' (as not to confuse the two). Albeit the two sections on the home-page ultimately lead to the same outcome, I used iconography for the fast rout to the checkout. A more simplistic visual cue implies the user may already know what they are after - VS - using photography to help users in their decision.

All visual mock-ups were created using Adobe Photoshop and are still pending feedback. This case-study was to examine my visual process for the task at hand, not to comment on the final solution. All designs were in-line with company branding.
